  • Our Story

    It can’t be faked. You know it when you see it. And smell it. And taste it. Fresh is everything. At Stoic & Genuine, fish, oysters, and happiness are flown in daily. This is the newest restaurant from the Crafted Concepts team of Jennifer Jasinski and Beth Gruitch, who have already made their mark on Denver with Rioja and Bistro Vendôme.


    We are a multi-coastal seafood house and oyster bar committed to impeccably-sourced, sustainable, creative seafood preparations, located in Denver's newly renovated historic Union Station. An exhibition kitchen opens up to a fresh raw bar with offerings that update constantly. Join us in the bar for a refreshing granita, craft and classic cocktails, or select from our estate wine list. Above all, enjoy fresh seafood flown in daily. No ocean. No worries.
